And from another angle.
The same race, in 2011. Check out the dog at 35 seconds in, and what the guy is actually wearing: a pinstripe suit! I’ve read that he went to a wedding directly afterwards. I for one would just have changed after the race.
Unfortunately, I didn’t find a shot showing the guy in full.
And a last one: inline skating! The race takes place on Saturday before the marathon. It’s possible to start in both races, they even have a separate ranking for double starters! The fastest guy did a 1:05 or so skating marathon and ran a 2:47 or so the next day. Not too shabby.
Another Berlin Marathon clip, this time with “Fridolin Flink”, the mascot of the organising SCC Events. He’s pretty cool, but of course has nothing on Cooly, the mascot of the Track & Field Euro Champs in Zurich next year.
Highlights from Berlin Marathon. I haven’t spotted myself yet, but maybe I just didn’t look long enough.
2:58:22 was not only slower than what I wanted, but even slower than Boston - not super happy about that, but still okay in my book for what I had on the day. The day where a world record was broken, by the way!
Details to follow.
I’m running Berlin marathon tomorrow! I had to cheat and took a picture of the race program, but I’ll actually pass Brandenburg Gate. Hopefully. I’d like to run something like sub 2:53:00. There will probably be tracking on the Berlin marathon website, and there is also an app for tracking: http://www.bmw-berlin-marathon.com/service/bmw-berlinmarathon-app.html
My start will be at 08:45 Berlin time, my bib number is 29125.
